Garden Gang grow and sell our own produce, which is grown in our school garden. Every half term the Garden Gang hold a vegetable and plant sale for parents. All funds raised go towards new equipment for our school garden.
For regular updates please see our pupil group book located in the school corridor.
Garden Gang will taking part in a daffodil planting scheme which has been set up by the Angel trust charity. Updates will follow soon on our school Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Here is what we have been up to:
September – Garden Gang held a fruit and vegetable sale on the school yard. We had lots of happy customers and raised funds to go towards our school garden.
October – We planted daffodils as part of The Angel Trust Charity planting scheme. The children worked together using different gardening tools to plant the bulbs, which will blossom in spring time. We look forward to watching them grow.
November – We designed our own compost posters which will be displayed around school.
January – Garden Gang have joined the RSPB school bird watch scheme. In the next few weeks Garden Gang will be taking part in the school bird watch scheme. We will be using our school garden to explore the wildlife in our local area.
